Did you know that you can remove tarnish from jewelry in 5 minutes~without spending a dime?
Because I have a sterling silver cross necklace that I wear every day, I was thrilled to learn how to remove tarnish from jewelry in 5 minutes~without spending a dime.
The tarnish removing technique works by causing a chemical reaction (oxidation) that transfers the tarnish from the jewelry to an aluminum pan. I don’t really understand the chemistry behind it; I just know it works! Here are before & after photos of my necklace….
So….if you’ve been wanting to clean your tarnished jewelry but didn’t know how, give yourself a few minutes to try this. Your jewelry will be like new! The easy breezy technique is below.
How to Remove Tarnish From Jewelry
1 pan (I used an aluminum pan)
1 piece of aluminum foil (large enough to go under the jewelry)
baking soda (2-3 TB is plenty; I sprinkled it over the jewelry pretty liberally)
boiling water (enough to completely cover the jewelry)
- Place the foil in the bottom of the pan.
- Place the necklace or jewelry in pan.
- Sprinkle baking soda over jewelry.
- Pour boiling water to cover the jewelry.
- Wait 2-3 minutes for oxidation to occur.
- Blot jewelry dry on a towel.
I would love to hear from you in the comments if you try this. Tell us what you cleaned and how it turned out. Send pics if you’d like:-) As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
